I’m reading with many, many New York poets this Thursday at The Highwaymen NYC’s anniversary celebration. Full moon, lots of poetry, and a reunion with a few of the notorious 1441 alumni. I had a chance to talk with the series host, Elizabeth, recently. Since she started The Highwaymen series last year, I think her entire life has changed (mine too!). She puts a tremendous effort into each event, and I’m very happy to be part of a celebration marking the one-year milestone. I’m looking forward to reading a few short (but not very sweet) new poems. One is called “How To Stop War,” it came from nowhere one day on the subway and scared me, and I hope this one finds its way into print somewhere soon.
The reading takes place at Molasses Books in Bushwick, a still new-to-me spot where I have not yet spent nearly enough time or money. There is a FB invite which you can find online here, I think.
